January 5 - February 9, 2019
Opening Reception: Sunday, January 13, 1 - 4pm
The Evanston Art Center is excited to announce the biennial EAC Studio Exhibition! This eagerly anticipated event will showcase artwork by students of all ages in the departments of Ceramics, Digital Arts, Painting and Drawing, Figure Sculpture, Jewelry and Metalsmithing, Photography, Printmaking and Woodworking. Students of all skill levels, from beginning to professional, will present work in a wide range of media and processes created at the Evanston Art Center.
The student body at the Evanston Art Center ranges from first-time beginners to experienced artists. Many EAC students are already professional artists or have gallery representation, but take classes at the Art Center in order to explore new media and techniques, have regular access to figure models and to benefit from peer interaction with other artists.
